Anthoula Malkopoulou

Researcher in the Department of Government, Uppsala University

I work at the Department of Government, University of Uppsala, most recently as Marie Curie Intra-European Fellow (2014-16) with the project NEGARE - 'Negative Representation: Ostracism, Recall and Negative Voting'.

My research and teaching interests are in political thought and conceptual history, with an emphasis on democratic traditions, voting principles and political representation. Recently, I have authored 'The History of Compulsory Voting in Europe: Democracy's Duty?' (Routledge, 2015) and with Lisa Hill a special issue on 'Equal Representation' (CRISPP, 2016). I have also published with Kari Palonen 'Rhetoric, Politics and Conceptual Change' (FI, 2011), several book chapters and articles in journals (Redescriptions, History of Political Thought, CRISPP, Constellations). Since 2015, I have been a Visiting Lecturer in Berlin, Rome, Malaga, Thessaloniki, New York, Adelaide and Jyväskylä.
